    Maybe a dumb question, but can I use a LGB transformer for Lionel? I seem to have a problem

    nah.... it's confusing sometimes with the power packs having Total V.A.C. written on them... you have to keep on your toes with this stuff :) :)

    Thanks for you're quick response, I hope I didn't hurt the Lionel engine, I tried it a few times (maybe 5 )only for a few seconds each time.
